by Martha Burns, PhD, CCC-SLP

0.15 CEUs

$ 34.00

Memory and attention disorders pose problems for rehabilitation of stroke, dementia and traumatic brain injured patients because of their impact on participation in therapy and effect on carryover during the recovery process. This course will review new research on attentional and memory networks in the brain (connectomes) with a focus on how specific therapeutic approaches can enhance selective and divided attention through working memory training. The information will be applicable to all therapeutic disciplines. Offered for 0.15 SLP CEUs – 1.5 contact hours. 

Content Disclosure: The content of this online CE course does not focus exclusively on any specific proprietary product or service. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab.  

Course Format:  Video PowerPoint presentation with author narration & downloadable handout.

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Apply new neuroscience research for differential diagnosis of cognitive impairments associated with TBI and dementia.
  2. Utilize neuroscience research on attentional networks and connectomes for developing evidence-based treatment plans for traumatic brain injury.
  3. Utilize neuroscience research on multitasking to evaluate cognitive mechanisms in normal versus impaired aging.
  4. Apply research on working memory and long-term retention to development of evidence-based treatment of memory disorders in patients with TBI and dementia.

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post test in order

ASHA CEUs: NSS online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.

Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses. For the most current information, we suggest that you contact your licensing board or agency to verify acceptance policies and/or any credit limits related to home-study courses prior to registering for this course.

ASHA CE Registry:  During the enrollment process, if you select to receive ASHA credit for this course and if you provide your ASHA number, NSS will automatically submit your CEU information to the ASHA CE Registry after successful course completion (80% on post test). This submission happens once per month, during the first week of the month. For example, if you complete your course on November 7th, NSS will submit all November online course CEUs to ASHA during the first week of December. When ASHA inputs the information into their database, they will mark the course as completed on the last day of the month in which it was completed, so November 30th using this example. The certificate of completion available for you to print immediately, however, will reflect the actual completion date, November 7th in this example. Due to ASHA processing procedures please allow 2-3 weeks, from the submission date, for the course to appear on your ASHA transcript.
